What to Expect for Your Pet’s Surgery

Pets must be fasted 8-12 hours before their procedure, if possible. We also need to conduct a full examination of your pet, including blood work, to reevaluate their condition and check for underlying problems. Patients receive painkillers and antibiotics prior to surgery, and we will place an IV catheter to administer fluids and maintain blood pressure and hydration levels. IV catheters also allow us to quickly and safely administer additional medications to your pet as needed.

A licensed veterinary technician will be standing by to monitor your pet’s vitals through the entire procedure, and will also watch over your pet as they awaken in the recovery ward. All recovering patients are given warm blankets to maintain their body temperature and keep them comfortable.

Once your pet has recovered from anesthesia, one of our team members will contact you and arrange a discharge time. We will provide you with post-op care instructions to follow at home, and answer any questions you have about your pet’s surgery and recovery. Feel free to call us any time in the following days if you have additional questions or concerns—we’re always happy to assist you.
